My Paleo Manila Diet: Week 14 x Paleo Ice Cream by Fog City Creamery
Good news for us diabetics, borderline diabetics, people on a diet, or just generally anybody who is careful with their sugar & dairy intake for one reason or another. My friends from FOG CITY CREAMERY sent me some PALEO ICE CREAM! Yes, you read it right. There is such a thing as a PALEO ice cream! FTW right? I’m like rejoicing. I’ve been prancing with joy since last Monday when EDY GAMBOA-LIU of Fog City Creamery sent me FOUR assorted pints to try! SUGAR-FREE & DAIRY-FREE!
Fog City Creamery is Artisanal Ice Cream at its finest. Its delicious all natural ice cream only uses the best quality ingredients from around the world & contains absolutely no preservatives or artificial stabilisers. Their ice cream flavors are only made in small batches at a time, which means every scoop is made with a lot of love and attention. Fog City ice cream flavors varies daily since they base their ingredients on what is fresh and in season, so do email or call them first to ask for available flavors.
Just to be clear, Fog City Creamery IS NOT LIMITED to PALEO Ice Cream, but it’s the one I’m focusing on here because it’s the only kind that I can, and that I CHOOSE to eat. Fog City also has the regular ice cream versions as well as the sugar-free versions using COCO NATURA. Choose your poison.

Fog City Creamery can also customize flavors for you! Thus the birth of a paleo-friendly Avocado ice cream. 2 versions were made upon request, one sweetened by honey the other with coco sugar. It is said that it tastes like avocado milkshake without the guilt! I hope I can try that soon! <3 I was given the Dark Chocolate Cherry (I love), and Coco Vanilla with Dark Chocolate Bits (I like) to try. And because I’m not a milk person, my taste leans towards the dark chocolate variant.mmm

Finally! I can have ICE CREAM! What sorcery is this #paleo Ice cream, @fogcitycreamery ??? Not too sweet that I’m afraid to touch it, and not too bland either that I don’t want to eat it.

The Taste. I have to be really honest with you. Don’t expect the taste of their PALEO Ice Cream to be the same as the regular heavily-creamed, heavily-sugared kind. There is a very distinct difference. But hey, at least you get to have some ice cream right? Some is still better than none! ;)
Having said that, it’s not bad-tasting. Don’t get me wrong. In fact, I loved the 2 flavors that I got to try. They’re just not as creamy as the regular variant. It’s also not like yogurt because it’s not sour. It’s still sweet but real sugar isn’t used. Making it not overly sweet, but still sweet just the same. So no, it’s not the same as yogurt. It’s not similar to gelato either. It’s a class all on its own, on a healthier scale. Much.
